In disguise

How awesome is this grasshopper’s camouflage? He looked just like the dried eucalyptus leaves that were lying on the verandah next to him.

Wildlife of Greater Brisbane says that he is… wait for it… a Dead Leaf Grasshopper!  Of course, why didn’t I guess that?  Otherwise known as Goniaea australasiae.
